The IDT Entertainment- owned video supplier has named Julie Campion to the newly created position of VP of marketing and brand management. In the new post, Campion will oversee all of marketing efforts for the company's release staples of fitness, TV on DVD titles, as well as catalog, the “Thomas & Friends” brand and Manga Entertainment.
Campion most recently held the position of VP of marketing for the company.
